Search Results Redirect

Specs: Windows XP Home SP3
I've got one of those search results redirect viruses. I have only noticed it in Google on Firefox, since these are really the only search engine and browser I use. Firefox has also been opening new tabs on its own which redirect to Google, as well as hanging, not fully closing (I usually have to end the process), and erasing cookies (which reappear when it starts the next time).

It is the redirect problem which most concerns me, so I've been looking for solutions on the internet all day and they all seem to direct me to these sorts of fora and require a HJT log, so here it is:

Please do the following:

1) Run HijackThis.exe again
2) Click on "Do a system scan" button
3) Put checks near the following items in scan results:

O23 - Service: FLEXnet Licensing Service FLEXnetdmadmin (FLEXnetdmadmin) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\system32\12520437m.exe (file missing)
O23 - Service: Distributed Transaction Coordinator MSDTCRpcSs (MSDTCRpcSs) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\system32\adsnth.exe
O23 - Service: NMIndexingService NMIndexingServiceVSS (NMIndexingServiceVSS) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\system32\acodex.exe (file missing)
O23 - Service: System Event Notification SENShpqddsvc (SENShpqddsvc) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\system32\adsmsextn.exe (file missing)

4) Click on Fix Checked
5) Reboot

But that I guess won't be enough.

Download following file and run it.

It may fix your problem.
